Ocea by aquaviann Ocea by aquaviann
White stoneware mask with various raku glazes. The penny is for scale.

I was trying for an aquatic, alien feel. The line of holes on the side are similar to the kind you see in many sea shells. The dark parts of the white half are more silver than they appear in the photo, and there's a large coppery red patch where the glare is.

NOTE: This is one piece in a series of nonfunctional, representational masks. I began the series around early 2001.

Really does evoke the lines and coloration of an abalone shell--well done!

The first thing I thought of was an alien artifact of some sort. Very cool :D
